Hi Sandeep,
I have started praparation for SCJP & would like to sit for the Exam in May first week. The first hurdle I faced towards SCJP was the Voucher. I had to get it from Pune (Just applied today). Globsyn kept on making false promises & couldn't deliver. Tell me something a'ut yourself, myself working as a WebAdministrator in a Financial Company & have experience in Application server.

Saptarshi

Hi Sandeep,
Actually Globsyn always keep's on saying that they will get the Coupons next week but that next week never comes.
So I was forced to go for Other Option's.
Now if u r working abroad than it would be better if u get SCJP voucher from that Country or City only cause here in Cal. it would be a Problem.
I had to request my Friend in Pune who applied for a Voucher in my name. Infact u can buy a Voucher from anywhere in the world & than sit for the Exam anywhere in the World. Voucher is valid for 1 Year, so better get a Voucher for u soon.
Regards,
Saptarshi

Hi Saptarshi,
I am preparing to take the exam this month-end. Have sent a DD to Sun India Bangalore for the voucher. The company I am working for in Oracle D2K is closing down so I am going for SCJP before looking for jobs again. Preparing with RHE,JQ+,Mughal and javaranch.
Siddharth.

Hi guys,
Is it really that hard to get a voucher in your country?
When I got mine, I got it and passed the exam the next day... It was just a phone call to get it...

Hi Siddharth,
Pls. tell me where are U situated ?? The resources u are using for SCJP preparation are Enought to clear the Exam.
It would be good if u have SCJP with Oracle D2K experience.
I know (Both Job & Stock) markets are Down now but don't worry it will recover, it's a temporary phase. And it's the Best time to enhance your skills.

Hi All,

The book by Khalid Mughal goes beyond the level of toughness
required for the certification exam but some topics like
inner classes have been explained better than in Simon Roberts.
The Roberts book is enough if you cover it minutely.
JQ+ is an excellent mock test software with explanations
to answers too. It costs only Rs 450/-. Lot of guys who cleared SCJP have recommended it in this site(certification results forum). You can get it from www.enthuware.com
It has 9 tests.
The address of Sun Educational Services, Sun India is :
Sun Microsystems,
6th Floor, Divyashree Chambers
Off langford Road
Shanthinagar
Bangalore - 560 027
Board:91-80-229 8989 / 207 2223 - 38 Extn. 27654
Fax:91-80-223 1792
Email: johnathan.sylvester@india.sun.com
As directed by them I have sent them a DD of Rs 6,975/- in favour of Sun Microsystems India Ltd., payable at Bangalore. However it is better you contact them and find out for yourself.
Once you get the voucher you can take the exam through any Prometric centre which offers this exam.
I am situated in Baguihati. Staying with friends.
Home in Naihati, 24 Pgns(N).
regards,
Siddharth.

Hi Siddharth,David & Sandip
I too plan to give the SCJP by late April . I am doing my Engg(2nd Sem) from J.U. & would love to interact with u regularly.if u can post u'r phone no or email id we can do so. By thw way I stay in SALT LAKE(near Purbachal).My mailid is :-
kausikb@123india.com
Since u can't get the voucher from GLOBSYN,i guess u cannot sit for the exam there to. In that case even if u have managed to get the voucher where will u sit for the exam . i believe there is a Sylvan Prometric centre at Minto Park where folks appear for their GRE & GMAT exams. in that case will it possible to give the exam from that place.
Looking forward to a reply from u soon.
Regards,
Kaushik

Hi All,
I have just received the exam voucher from sun india, bangalore.
Now i will have to go to Globsyn and schedule my exam. Globsyn is not giving out vouchers but if you have the voucher you can go there for your exam.
Most probably I will take it on 25th.
Siddharth.

Hi everybody,
What I could get is that nearly everyone has suffered at the hands of Globsys in Cal. so I would like to share something which I had done...
When i saw that Globsyn is constantly making false promises than I took the help of my friends in Pune, B'bay, Delhi, B'lore & H'bad. Surprisingly everybody said that Coupons are easily available in those cities except H'bad where all the Coupons & Slots for the Exam are Booked... and consequently Voucher's are been sold at a premium prise of 1.5 times the original amount. But in Pune, B'bay, Delhi, B'lore Vouchers r easily available. So I would request all of u to contact ur Friends or Relatives in these cities & tell them to Apply for a Voucher in your name.
Mind u all u need is 1-2 Passport size Snaps & Address proof (e.g Bank Statement, Ration Card, Passport, Driving license, Voter ID card) ALL XEROX COPIES ONLY. And ofcourse the Money which U can send by any means u like, I would also like to add a point here that the Voucher cost also varies from City to City(e.g it's 6975/- in Pune & 7300/- in Delhi & H'bad) so don't worry if the cost varies....
So ur friend or relative can apply at the concerned city under ur name...After they apply they still have to wait for 10 to 15 days before they get the Voucher in Hand ....After that they can send u the Voucher by Speed Post or Courier...
Now all u have to do is go to any Prometric center in Calcutta & Book for a time slot for the Exam....
As far as I know U can go to any Authorised Prometric center in Cal. & give the Exam.. All u have to do is to give 1 Week notice before sitting for the Real Thing !!!
And then all depends on ur Hard Work & Ofcourse Luck !!!
I hope this solves many of ur worries a'ut getting the SCJP Vouchers...
Regards all,
Saptarshi

Hi All,
You can get the voucher as I did. Just send a DD of Rs 6,975/- to bangalore office of sun india and you will get it in a week's time without having to send any identification.
I had sent my DD by courier on 10th and today I got my voucher.
You can find the details of how to send the DD in one of my posts above.
And don't forget to notify the sun people of this crisis of vouchers in Calcutta.
Siddharth.

Hi Everybody,
I think it's Important to mention that the Method used by me & Siddarth may be diffrent but Ultimately lead to the same Goal that is to get an Exam Voucher for the JCP Exam.
Now it depends on u people that what suites u more but one thing is sure both methods can be used.
Study hard & Best of Luck to you all for SCJP,
Regards,
Saptarshi.
